You don't really want to hear this.
But close only matters when playing horseshoes, hand granades, and nuclear weapons. You lost. You came in second out of two.
And you lost even with the element of surprise on your side. You grabbed her from the back without her even knowing what was going on. And you still ate custard. It is tough to lose a sneak attack, but you did.
I hope you are not, but you come across as a stuck up, snobbish, juvenile bimbo. I am pretty sure that everyone was happy to see you get yours.
It is not up to you who your guy talks to. And if he is interested. If you are half as interesting and good looking as you claim, you should have the confidence that your guy will.return to you.
To review. You didn't get your ass kicked, but probably only because she didn't think of it while you were head down ass up in the custard bucket.
